How to Spend Memorial Day on St. Simons Island

No matter how old we get, Memorial Day Weekend still brings the same thrill it did when we were kids and it officially signified the end of the school year and the beginning of everything that was wonderful about summer. We didn’t do a lot of traveling, though; our parents were content with an extended weekend in our RV at a local campground. While that may be fun, we think you’re ready for something more adventurous! If you’re planning on traveling for your Memorial Day Weekend, we’ve compiled this list of fun ways to spend your Memorial Day on St. Simons Island.

There are No Bad Days at the Beach

Picnicking on colorful blankets, building sand castles at water’s edge, and riding the waves with a boogie board is just some of the fun that can be had on a beach day which will make your Memorial Day Weekend celebrations something for the memory books! Learn how to kitesurf, charter a boat, or simply sit on your beach chair listening to your favorite playlist as you soak up the warmth of that gorgeous Georgia sun. There’s no rules on how you spend your Memorial Day Weekend at the beach, only possibilities!

Taps at Twilight

Memorial Day is when we honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country, and Taps at Twilight, held at Pier Village Neptune Park Bandstand, is a lovely way to do so. The concert lasts from 6:45 until 8 PM and has been going on for over 28 years.

Enjoy a Lunch at Brogen’s

Brogen’s has been an island tradition for over 30 years, and in a world that’s constantly changing, it’s the things that stay the same that reassure us. Play shuffle board in the same spot a famous columnist did for years, drink a beer from the bar that has served thousands of people over the years, and enjoy one of the best burgers in town with a view of the water on the patio. Being with family and new friends make’s Memorial Day even more special!
